The Nintendo Switch in particular is ideal for this, as the Joy-Con controllers are controlled by movements and almost no additional devices are required.

Sports do not always have to be annoying!

I’m not a big sports fan either, to be honest. But it has to be, if you want to stay healthy. In my opinion, sports on the console are simply the perfect combination of fun and exercise. Especially in times of lockdowns and high infection rates, you want a motivator within your own four walls to get up off the couch and do some fitness. The Nintendo Switch can definitely do that for me.
